A useful way to tell people you are looking for work
Instead of saying "I'll take any job,"get specific (but reasonable.)
1. Name one or two specific kinds of work you'd like to do.
2. Name a place or places you'd enjoy working.
3. Name a couple of your skills or previous jobs that are appropriate to this job.
Networking, it's not just for chat rooms anymore.
1. Start by networking in the usual places, friends, employers, school, agencies,
2. Try some atypical networking—ask the parents or grandparents of people you know or meet—they often have varied job experience, plus extensive networks of friends and relatives around the country who are doing interesting things.
3. Become a valuable resource. Make a note of who you meet in different lines of work, and available jobs, even though they are not what you are looking for yourself, so you can share this information with those who need it.
